A solid-state drive is really quicker than any regular hard-disk drive. It is because an HDD works by using spinning disks, which can rotate only so fast and the more info is read and written, the sluggish and warmer they get, whereas an SDD employs modules of flash memory, therefore there are no actually moving components. The access speeds for an SSD are much higher, which makes this type of drives the best solution when speed is needed. Because of this SSDs are in many cases used for the Operating System on a PC and for saving data that's used repeatedly on servers. Many providers also use a combination of the two drives, so they save the data on HDDs, but they use several solid-state drives so as to cache the more often used data and as a consequence, the data loads a lot faster while the load on the HDDs is reduced as their disks need to spin less often to read and write.

SSD with Data Caching in Cloud Hosting

We use solely SSDs on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform and we have eliminated all HDDs on our production servers in order to ensure improved loading speeds for every part of our services - files, emails and databases. Thus, all the content which you upload to your cloud hosting account will be accessible very quickly. To enhance the performance of the websites hosted on our end even further, we also use a number of SSDs which work exclusively as cache - our system stores frequently accessed content on them and updates it automatically. We use this kind of a configuration to guarantee that multi-media loaded sites will not influence the performance of the other websites hosted on our platform and that way all other Internet sites can also take advantage of the speed that the SSD drives provide. Furthermore, since the load on the main drives is decreased, their life-span will be longer, which is one more guarantee for the safety and stability of your information.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

All semi-dedicated server accounts that we offer are generated on a cloud platform which employs solely SSD drives. We don't use HDDs anymore, so your sites will load amazingly quickly because we employ SSDs for every part of the service - files, databases and emails. Considering that some people may host Internet sites which are more frequently visited than others, we also use multiple drives for caching. Our system detects any content which is accessed more regularly and copies it on these drives in order to load it from them. This configuration is used for load-balancing purposes as we ensure that several reading/writing intensive sites will not influence the performance of the rest of the Internet sites that are stored on the very same primary drive. Using caching drives also increases the lifespan of the main storage SSDs and lowers the chance of disk failures.
